Yama Goyomatsu

Post  ybonsai on Mon Mar 01, 2010 9:29 pm

I want to show you a yamadori White pine of my collection that i styled in may 2008.

Here are some pictures of the tree before.






So I tilted the tree to the front for a better movement and the nebari looked not bad for a pine in this position, plus you can see the start of the lifevein.



After the position was right for me, we could search for the line between dead and life,cleaning the deadwood,remove rotten wood with a iron brush on a proxxon and do some work on the deadwood to make a better movement in the trunk.






I only burn the deadwood that has been worked on, it's a shame to spoil what nature made.


Then I made the deadwood wet so the wood will take the jin seal better.


Applying the Jinseal.



After the cleaning , the wiring and the styling of the tree could begin.
Some big branches had to be bend and it was only possible with a guywire.


Some branches were so stiff i had to apply some raffia.


the tree after the wiring.


And the styling can begin.



The endresult.


The tree a week ago, repotted and rewired.


Greetings,
Yannick

Most excellent. I would love to have, or even see this tree! Somewhat unusual styling for a white pine I think - seems more typical of a red pine perhaps, but doesn't matter. I love it.

Hello Todd ,

I live in Belgium Smile
The goyomatsu(specie kokonoe) is an import tree from Japan that came over in Januari 2008,where they have collected i wouldn't know but maybe I can ask to the person who imported from Japan to here ,where in Japan the tree was collected.

@Velodog2 then you have to come over to Belgium some day Laughing

@The others thank you for youre nice compliment Very Happy

Hi Yannick.

Great tree, thanks for sharing.

My understanding has always been that 'kokonoe' is one of the dwarf five-needle pine cultivars. 'Zuisho' is another and is actually preferred to 'kokonoe'. Both have short, dark green needles but 'zuisho' has a better (more suitable for bonsai) growth habit. The candles of both really elongate and the new growth ends up looking like a bottle brush if you don't stay on them.

I haven't had any contact with goyomatsu in over 20 years because of my climate, but your tree's foliage is NOTHING like 'kokonoe'. It reminds me of the trees I saw that came from the Nasu area near Nikko.

Russell, how did you manage to learn about the different types of pines in Japan? There is a Zushio grower in Lynchburg, VA named Julian Adams. I had the opportunity to watch him repot a cutting. I hope to grow a white pine one day. I hope to visit Japan and Chinaone day too. Smile Julian told me that Zushio grows faster than most other white pines. I have to save my pennies for a nice pine. Thanks for the info! Regards, Todd

Todd,

For a country the size of Japan, the geographical variations of five-needle pines is amazing. Colors vary from darkish green (Nasu) to medium green (Fukushima) to blue green (Shikoku) to silver blue (Miyajima). Needles also vary from short and straight to (too) long and twisted. And don't think for a minute that if a good tree is collected with undesirable foliage that it won't get changed out by grafting.

I've wondered about trying 'zuisho' here in my climate just because it is so strong. It is definately the best of the dwarf cultivars and would be the only one I'd consider - if I could get one CHEAP!!!

I lived in Japan and studied bonsai for 3 years back in the mid '80's.
